Skeleton Tree At Sunset

Skeleton Tree At Sunset

mangled phalanges
reach from haunched spectral shoulders
death screams at dusk

    U painted a grotesque looking image which did great justice to the photo...creepy eerie and all the things a haunted tree emulate....wonderful haiku, Susan...I had something in mind for this contest, but by the time I got home from work to post it, it was closed! So goes it with the fast and furious world of PS contests...lol...luv, gwendolen

    this contest gave the skeleton tree a real personality. and every one has something except me. i think it deserved more than haiku. oh! i have one!

    Your poem gives the dead tree an animal-like quality. Admirable.
